"Help: J1 Flash stopped working"



I have a four month old Nikon J1. Recently the Flash completely quit firing. I have tried all modes and all settings but it just wont work. Also tried removing the battery for a few days but that did not help either.

I wonder if this may be a known issue with the J1 - see this post on the Nikon website:

Here is the relevant quote from the above link:
we recently bought a j1 and the flash quit working a few days later, is this a known issue and has it been resolved with the j2?
Location : Colorado, USAAge: 25-34
on Nikon 1 J1

You will need to send your camera for service in order to be evaluated by one of our technicians to find out what's wrong with your camera. Title: How do I get my Nikon product serviced?

NikonStaff 2 weeks, 4 days ago".

I would appreciate any suggestions I might try to get the flash working.

Else, looks like I will have to send the camera to the Nikon Calif service centre for repairs..
Which brings me to another issue - surprisingly, in the Service request form that one is required to fill out online, where the camera type is to be selected, there is no option for any Nikon 1 series cameras. There are only Coolpix and D-SLR options. So which option are Nikon 1 users supposed to select? See here:

I would be grateful for any help with the above. Thanks in advance!
